We are specialists in the design and management of WordPress websites
and work towards safety and efficiency of WordPress sites
For that reason it needs extra management support, as anything that popular is a target for hackers. It is estimated over 20,000 websites are hacked daily.
What do all these Hacked Websites have in Common?
Lack of proper website security.
Much of the vulnerability happens because of failure to upgrade themes and plugins.
Such hacks can cost any business dearly in lost business and credibility.
WordPress is an ever-changing environment and wonderful as it is it needs to be upgraded with regular frequency to meet modern demands and increased security.
Not only does WordPress platform itself need to be managed, but also Themes and Plugins require constant maintenance too.
Failure to upgrade any of these can result in vulnerabilities in security and although WP is an extremely stable system, out of date add-ons can lead to occasional conflict and failures within the website.
Apart from causing vulnerabilities, out of date themes and plugins can prevent WordPress from operating properly and increase loading times,and nobody likes slow websites
WordPress can become very messy if it is not manage properly. For example, every time you save a page or post, WordPress automatically creates a revison copy.
That means if you save a post 20 times while building it, not unusual, you actually have 20 copies of it sitting on your system. Multiply this by all your posts and they really add up.
Those who are purely malicious and only set out to damage or destroy a website because they can and those who want to steal from you.
So, why would someone hack your website?
Hackers are able to attack a certain version of a certain type of website easily as any specific site, so if there are a million websites on a list matching their criteria, they can quite literally hack a million websites automatically in one go, overnight.
They could use your server to mine bitcoins to make them money, essentially slowing down your server potentially to the point it is unusable. They can use your server to send spam emails, which could add you to spam-lists stopping your emails from going through. They could also subtly (or not so subtly) alter the content on your website to promote their own, or alter how Google sees it to boost their own ranking at the expense of yours. or even destroy your website altogether.
These few reasons are just the proverbial tip if the iceberg. A genuine business can suffer greatly at the hands of spite or greed. MORE ABOUT SECURITY HERE
Don’t Think “It Can’t Happen To Me” or “Why Would They Bother With Me?” You are a means to an end – Their End
You will be amazed that many WordPress website owners still use the default username “ADMIN” and their email address as their password. Believe it or not we have seen commercial business with “PASSWORD” as ther password
Why is this so important? Because every hacker knows that ADMIN is the default username so half their work is already done.
Secondly, your email address should never be used as a password as that too is a gift to hackers
